AARON PREPARES FOR 2009 WORLD CUP PODIUM SPOTLIGHT
World Cup Star and Slalom specialist, Aaron Larkin (NZL), had a fantastic season in 2008. Kicking off in a Finals duel with World Record holder Chris Parrish (USA) at the Moomba Masters in Melbourne last March, he very nearly took that title. His Moomba silver medal was his second on the Yarra River in the past two years. By the end of the 2008 World Cup season, he was right on top again when he took the Doha Qatar World Cup Slalom title on that occasion. This was a perfect ending to a great year on the water at the highest level.
Since the year-end, Aaron has been back in his NZL homeland giving Waterski Clinics in the North Island. He then took six weeks off for some well deserved rest and also spent time with girlfriend, Anais Amade (FRA), sightseeing in the beautiful Hamilton area. In the past month, both Aaron and Anais have concentrated on their gruelling daily Gym routines to prepare for next weekend’s Moomba Masters once again – and of course for the 2009 World Cup season ahead. It was exactly this time last year when Aaron Larkin hit the Moomba headlines and that gave him a perfect start for the World Cup season. Can he do it again ? He will certainly be worth watching very closely in this 2009 World Cup season and don’t be surprised if you see this tall, strong and talented Slalom specialist taking another World Cup Slalom Stop title once again in 2009.
